- Department of Computer Systems
Students acquire basic skills needed to administrate computer networks and to ensure their security. They understand and are able to practically use Ethernet technology, VLAN, authorisation, security architecture of computer networks, routing protocols and backbone routing mechanisms, directory and naming services and addressing, administration of networking equipment, secure client connections and secure data transfer, flow control mechanisms, and service availability monitoring.
Basic knowledge of network technologies.
